Amish Country to Host $5000 National Championships
The Second Annual Beard Team USA National Beard and Moustache Championships will take place in Lancaster, Pennsylvania next fall. Cash prizes totaling $5000 will be awarded to the best facial hair in America. The date will be October 8, 2011.
Beard Team USA, which represents the United States at the World Beard and Moustache Championships, is thrilled to be holding the championships in Amish Country, where the local Amish farmers have been growing beards for America for over 200 years. As part of the festivities, contestants, their friends, and fans will have the opportunity to attend Amish Camp, where they can live with and like the Amish for 24 hours.
Last year’s inaugural national championships were held in Bend, Oregon. Over two hundred spectacularly bearded and moustachioed contestants vied for top honors in four separate categories before a panel of distinguished judges that included Miss Oregon and Mr. Sirwan Singh, according to the Guiness Book of World Records the man with the world’s longest beard.
